Time is running out for businesses to get their share of the Government’s £40m connection vouchers scheme. The scheme provides grants of up to £3,000 for SMEs looking to upgrade their internet connectivity, and it has proven very popular across the Yorkshire region.
Over 5,000 vouchers have been issued to Yorkshire businesses, which means that Yorkshire is the top region in terms of take-up outside London. The popularity also means the funding pot is running low, and Government have estimated that the pot will run out in October or November this year.
The scheme provides funding for a range of different technology types that can deliver superfast speeds, so even if your business is not within range of a fibre-enabled cabinet, it could potentially still benefit from technology such as wireless connectivity or a leased line. The scheme is available across most of Yorkshire, including the whole of West Yorkshire.
